Washington's Danny Shelton (6-foot-2, 339 pounds), who is both stout against the run and a legitimate inside pass rusher, per NFL Media's Omar Ruiz.
Shelton was a three-year starter for the Huskies and had 154 tackles, 11 sacks and 20 tackles for loss in his final two seasons at Washington.
Shelton is the best pure nose tackle in the draft and ranks ninth on NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah's list of the top 50 prospects. All six NFL Media analysts who have done mock drafts have Shelton going in the first round; Jeremiah has the Browns selecting Shelton at No. 12, and Charles Davis has the Browns taking Shelton at No. 19, with their second first-round selection.
The Browns use a 3-4 set and the entire front seven could use some retooling; the line was especially problematic last season.
